This is an unmissable opportunity for all of Zurich to...

• And have a lot of fun !

Switzerland will be no exception, and a special event is planned for Saturday 14th May in the Paradeplatz Zurich.

Please contact me via cell to meet, 079 88 49 315, I really look forward to meeting you!

Event duration will be approximately 10am-10pm... I will be there approximately midday until late afternoon

Detailed description:

Amnesty has launched a series of historic posters for display, including designs by Picasso and Miro.

The Zurich AI group will stage a really joyful action to celebrate all the work that ordinary Amnesty members have been doing since 1961. They are inviting everyone to join them for the day in the Paradeplatz, which they intend to rename – especially for the occasion – “Human Rights Square” !

Placards will tell you details of the 30 Articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Visitors can write a card, supporting our anniversary message, and learn about how Amnesty really does get results. Students from Zurich’s Art College are creating an installation depicting the reality of Human Rights, in a novel and entertaining way. And there will be plenty for the children to do. They can take part in a huge memory game about Human Rights – and get an AI balloon to play with.

Sometimes it feels difficult to be light-hearted about Amnesty’s work. The reality is often depressing, shameful, frustrating. But Amnesty campaigns do work ! Prisoners are released and reunited with their families ; death sentences are repealed ; the “disappeared” are found again. There is a lot to celebrate and tell the world about. So come and join in the celebration on 14th May!
